On March 27, 1958, France passed the Bretton Stripe Shirt Act, which made blue and white striped knitted shirts part of the French sailor's uniform.
It is believed that striped t-shirts help to find sailors who fall off the boat. Later, the striped t-shirt became the standard not only for the French Navy and fishing fleet but also for other navies around the world.
It became fashionable a century later. The classic Bretton blue and white stripes are the symbols of the sailor, and the collar is also a prominent symbol of the French sailor's shirt. The collar's wonderful use is that it can quickly take off clothes after falling into the water, and won't jam the neck.

I purchased the Breton Stripe T-Shirt in size 42, I am 5 ft 10 and 12 1/2 stone and it fits perfectly! Great for layering or wearing solo on hotter days. Highly recommended!
Great quality and design, have just ordered in the alter colour way!
In a world full of low quality vintage replicas, this was a rare exception; heavy weight, beautifully cut and an instant favorite. True to its vintage roots.
Great shirt , love it
I really love the quality of this item! It’s classic and robust. I was surprised to see that the cream colored stripes were as rich as they were in person, darker than I expected. It’s also more snug than I expected, so I would recommend overshooting by a size.
Excellent quality product
Lots of inquiries about where to get the shirt and other stuff.
Like all of my Bronson purchase's this is amazing quality that could easily rival similar, more expensive brands.
Thick cotton, high quality, simple design, a classic
It is a great shirt that I enjoy wearing,great fit and heart made.Thank you for a fine shirt.
Very nice shirt, high quality fabric and construction
Very good quality.
I bough a size 44 since I wanted it to fit oversized, the quality is amazing! So soft and comfortable. I’m 5’6 for reference. I will shop here again most likely.
Fantastic packaging, all t shirts are excellent quality
great fit and quality!
I should have ordered a size xlg. The LG fits too snug
Nice cut and detail with neck
Great with cream wide pants for the vintage look
Very nicely done and true to size. Fits very well. No washing instructions came with the shirt so I don't know if it will shrink in the drier.
